Teaching and Presenting with Keynote

When I’m teaching teachers how to teach coding we spend a lot of time in Keynote.

The excellent Develop in Swift series, from Apple, comes with a whole set of keynote files for presenting nearly every lesson in the book. If you download the teacher materials from the Teacher Guide, you’ll find the slides, presenter notes, animations in the keynote files already, as well as Xcode playground-based labs for your students to try.

Now, if you’re new to the Mac, you might to be super familiar with Keynote. So I’ve put together a short video which you can watch below, or you can head off to YouTube, to help you orient yourself in Keynote.

I show you how to present on a Mac with only one screen so you can see your presenter notes, too. If you have an iPhone or an iPad, you might want to watch the Using Keynote Remote to Present video to see how to use the Keynote app on your device to remote control your Mac’s presentation.

If you’ve got all that down, but need help sharing your screen over WebEx, well, I’ve got a video for that, too.

Of course, if you’re new to the Mac or Keynote you’ll still need to get some hands-on practice, but at the very least this video above will start you out on the right foot!
